Former Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly keen on a move back to the Premier League.
The Express is reporting that the Portuguese has become disillusioned since his move from Old Trafford to the Spanish capital.
The report also claims that Ronaldo misses the influence of Red Devils manager Sir Alex Ferguson, someone who he considers a father figure and mentor.
Los Merengues paid a world-record £80million to secure Ronaldo’s services from Manchester United but, despite three record breaking years and leading La Liga by five points, it seems his relationship with the Madrid fans has soured.
Past weeks have seen the atmosphere in the Santiago Bernabeu turn somewhat hostile towards Ronaldo and manager Jose Mourinho, with both being jeered by fans and the former having his attitude questioned, as well as criticism of his performances against fierce rivals Barcelona.
This report now suggests that Ronaldo has lost patience with supporters and feels he is not appreciated as much as he should be.
If Ronaldo should decide to end his time in Spain, his availability could alert big spending teams such as Chelsea and Manchester City, though his relationship with United could prove decisive in any destination choice.
